Peschiera del Garda
The port town of Peschiera, populated in prehistoric times, has always been a strategically important point, because here the Mincio River leaves the Garda lake fed by mountain streams.
Vacation in Peschiera
In the Middle Ages ... If you made the Mincio navigable and created a connection to the Adriatic. Today the river forms the natural border between Veneto and Lombardy. The Langobarden gave the former fishing village around 740 to the former fishing village. Dill off from the Italian word pesce (fish), the name Peschiera developed, which was supposed to express the area of fish. At the time of the Romans, the place was called Arilica and was already protected by a fortress.
Today's bastion ... With its 2250 meter long wall, the Venetian period around 1555 when Michele Samicheli and Guidobaldo d´ Urbino were fortress builder of the Doge. Napoleon Bonaparte had the system intensified in 1790. The same happened after the peace of Villafranca under the rule of the Habsburgs, which expanded the fortresses of Peschiera, Verona, Mantua and Legnano into a strategically important defense rattle. It was not until 1866, when the Austrians were with the Prussians in the war that the King of Italy Viktor Emanuel II was also able to count Veneto among his empire. The new borders against the displaced Austrians were drawn in Trentino, and thus the previously insurmountable fortress was lost in its strategic importance.
